Gio Castillo - A Life worth remembering!

On, Friday, the 13th of December, Gio Castillo lost his fight with cancer.  He has been fighting cancer for two years.  He was surrounded by those that love him, especially his wife, Heather, his three beautiful children, and other family members.

Gio, fought to the end.  I can guarantee to you that he would never have given up.  All though he was a fighter to the end, his body just could not endure any more.  He had gone through 4 intense chemo treatments trying to work his way to a bone marrow transplant. He was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic leukemia two years ago.  They thought that they had beat it, but May of 2013, it was discovered that the cancer was back, but this time it was Acute Myeloid Leukemia, probably a result of his last chemo treatment.

Gio was and always will be an amazing husband, father, and friend.  All though I did not know him real close, his wife is a long, long, time friend of mine.  Their children are wonderful kids, beautiful, bright, and a joy to be around.  He did the best that he could do to take care of his family.  He will be missed, but never forgotten.

We love you Gio Castillo!!! May you be at peace and join with your past family.  Know that your family here on earth will always be looked after and cared for.  I will always be there for Heather and the kids.  She will be ok, I know this.

I bear to you my testimony that our lord and savior Jesus Christ lives.  That he died for us so that we can return to be with him and out heavenly father.  I know that we can be with our families for eternity and that when we pass from this world to the next, that we will be in a perfect body.  I know that, Gio, is now pain free and back to perfect health is will be watching over his family.
